The microphone does not work.


Make sure the mic is plugged in to the purple jack on the back of the machine - also make sure that the mic port is selected for recording - check control panel -> sounds and audio devices -> advanced under "device volume" - this will bring up the Volume Control - select Options -> properties -> recording and make sure that the Select box is checked under the microphone slider.

I CANNOT GET THE MICROPHONE WORKING


This could be due to several reasons - 
> Faulty microphone (something could be wrong with the device, or the input jack) - Try using your microphone on a friend's PC. If it is working fine, then proceed to the next line.

> Incorrectly installed sound card - Have you installed the sound card and its drivers correctly? Update your sound card's drivers, and then give it a try with the microphone.
> Go to Control Panel->Sounds and Audio Devices. Go to Audio tab, and in the Sound Recording  section, check whether your sound card is selected. Click on Volume button here, and ensure that Microphone is "Selected". Do the same with the Voice tab too.

On my webcam the microphone is not working


Check the microphone is plugged in, sound card is working and unit is compatible to your system. If worked before, try a system restore to earlier date. Do other microphones work?
